Jason Reitman to Direct New Ghostbusters Movie
According to Entertainment Weekly, Jason Reitman will continue the tradition started by his father, Ivan, and helm the next big-screen Ghostbusters adventure.
“I’ve always thought of myself as the first Ghostbusters fan, when I was a 6-year-old visiting the set. I wanted to make a movie for all the other fans,” Reitman told the outlet. “This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot. What happened in the ‘80s happened in the ‘80s, and this is set in the present day.”
Sony Pictures will release the film in the summer of 2020 and are aiming to begin production later this year.
